Our Spanish Aeronef models, released two Salutes ago in 2017, have been very popular so far. Although a fairly well-rounded fleet, they’ve been missing one class of ship, namely an aircraft carrier. I previewed a CGI design a little while back and at Salute this year the physical model will make its appearance.
The Príncipe de Asturias class are large vessels with a main deck that flares out beyond the main hull. At each corner is an AA turret, with maintenance hangars at each end of the deck and twin funnels either side. The narrow flight deck arcs over the top, with the tiny main bridge at flight deck level on the port side.
